Just like their engagement session in July, Tori and Michael’s wedding day was the perfect temperature with no clouds in the sky. Their families and friends gathered at Revel on a Monday afternoon in April to see them become husband and wife.
I knew when I first met with Tori and Michael that some of the details of their wedding would be a little different from what I’ve seen before, and all the details were so unique and well-coordinated when I saw them in person. They had a yellow and gray color scheme; the bridesmaids wore gray maxi skirts and the groomsmen wore yellow suspenders and bow ties, all with black Converses. Tori’s long-sleeved lace and tulle gown was straight out of a fairy tale wedding, with a cotton crown she made herself and yellow Converses to match Michael’s—the same ones they wore with their black and white outfits at their engagement session. Instead of bouquets, Tori and her bridesmaids carried lanterns with cotton and string lights inside. The tables had cotton centerpieces and their favorite yellow candies. For the reception, they picked out breakfast food, because “who doesn’t love breakfast food?” As a couple who met during Governor’s School and graduated from Clemson, they had all of their rings present for their detail shots. Their “guest log” was cut from an actual log where all their guests could sign.
You could see that Tori and Michael were so happy for this day to finally be here. They were so smiley for their portraits, which makes it easy for me! It’s been so much fun to be part of their engagement and their wedding day over the past year or so.
